Community Tasting Notes (11) Avg Score: 91.3 points

  • Second bottle of the lot, one year later. Dark purple, healthy and rich in color. 1 hour decant this time, with continuous improvement upon more time exposed. Initial nose of restrained back fruit, wet tobacco and evergreen, opening up overtime to intense ripe berry, concentrated jam and cocoa elements. Palate followed along a similar evolution, rich black fruit, mint, pipe tobacco, earth and chewy tannin. Drinking perfectly, with intact structure and just the right backbone. The closest you can get to a first growth.

  • Mushroom and Birthday tasting (Helsingør): Has kept very nicely. Lovely bright and pure fruit flavors but lacking intensity and aftertaste.
    Still a lovely bottle.

  • Rich garnet color, showing vibrancy and little signs of a wine with 30 plus years on it. Nose was muted at first, with light and dusty berry notes and some floral elements. After an hour of air, secondary notes started to shine, and definable evergreen, spice, cassis and forest elements were very evident. Palate was light and elegant, with more spiced fruit, graphite and stone coming thru. Still plenty of life left and a great example of just how great second labels can be.

  • Wow, this is NOT on the downhill slide, though certainly will not improve. Glorious actually in its dry plummy bright fruit and substantial, perfectly balancing structure and quite adequate length, though a touch rustic. I played with this bottle for a week, and only in the last sip on the last day did this start showing oxidative notes. Given to me by a friend. (Nice gift, thank you Dennis.) More, please. -smile-

  • Mild floral nose (jasmin) that grew over time. Cherry, oranges, cedar. Mouth filling, nice sweetness but light and quite delicate. Pencil lead, flowers and earthiness. Alcohol aroma a bit too prevalent at first (a tad 'porty' - slight oxidation?) but this burnt off after an hour or so. Past its prime I think , but still enjoyable.
